                                      I really enjoyed my stay at Mokolodi Backpackers. I stayed in the single chalet with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities for one week. Highlights: Fantastically clean bathroom, kitchen, and room. Enjoyed the practical furnishings in the room and the bed was comfortable. Welcoming, relaxed and friendly staff who I always enjoyed chatting to. Within two kilometers of the Mokolodi Game Reserve, which you can cycle or walk to, and a 150P taxi ride from the Gaborone CBD. I’ll be back!Establishments response: Thank you so much for the lovely review Jenna, you were a fabulous guest and we look...
